13-year-old boy steals car, strikes officer

13-year-old Ladarius Adams is charged with auto theft, aggravated assault and evading arrest, after he led Memphis police on a car chase and struck an officer with a stolen vehicle.

The chase began Saturday afternoon at a Chuck Hutton dealership in the 2500 block of Mount Moriah.

Police say the juvenile stole a 2008 Dodge Magnum from the dealership lot, and led police on a car and foot chase.

While behind the wheel, Adams struck an officer who ordered him to put the vehicle in park. The officer suffered minor injuries and is expected to be okay.

The boy was later arrested in the 4600 block of Helene, but not before hitting a vehicle occupied by an adult driver and two children, who escaped without injuries.
